Traveler Tips

I'm surprised that one-hour helicopter tours in places like Thailand and Bali can cost as much or even much more.
I would recommend doing this early in your trip because it gives you so many ideas of where you should go.

Took my Mother-in-Law (82) and her sister (79) on a once in a life time 60 minute flight of Ohau. I had a lot of concern they would scared due to the turbulence and just the flight overall but they had the biggest grins on their face when we landed and both wanted to do it again.

The flight was so smooth, even my wife who has a fear of heights was comfortable with a doors off tour. Amazing views, great pilot/guide, entire family thoroughly enjoyed the ride.
JoAnn_A, Jun 2022
The open door let me see so much clearer. The staff was very professional and kind. Booking was easy. Wished there was a pickup and drop off to and from my hotel. Pilot was new and needed more island knowledge to answer our questions but he flew the helicopter super 👌

Damir_S, May 2022
No tips keep doing what your doing I really enjoyed my experience on the flight from takeoff to landing
Amazing and unforgettable experience
Paul_V, May 2022
First time flying in a helicopter, so that experience by itself was amazing. Loved hearing stories about the island. Seeing the waterfall. Flying next to paragliders, the Pearl Harbor info…it was like I was in the movie. I experienced a lot of Ohau by land so it was great to see it by air
What a rush!
Eric_H, May 2022
Gotta do 'doors off'! Unbelievable! Highlight of our trip! Was nervous because you're right there on top of all the scenery, you tend to forget you're strapped in. Lots of fun. Flying with Josh was awesome.
Highly Recommended
Phillip_W, May 2022
Fantastic experience. Highly recommend this top notch and safety first company. We had to cancel first time due to weather but they got us in the very next morning.
The BEST ever!
Calvin_M, May 2022
Our pilot, Harley, was great! He took extreme care to give us the smoothest flight. He was very polite and treated us with the utmost respect. It was fantastic!
